Watch Kevin Hart partake in a heist in the Lift official trailer
The Lift official trailer is finally out and gives us a glimpse on Kevin Hart’s next adventure. Launching on Netflix on January 12, 2024, the upcoming comedy feature is directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Daniel Kunka. Kevin Hart is also serving as the producer and is followed by a cast filled by Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Vincent D’Onofrio, Úrsula Corberó, Billy Magnussen, Jacob Batalon, Jean Reno, and Sam Worthington.
The new Kevin Hart Netflix movie shows Hart playing Cyrus Whitaker. Him and his group are being apprehended for their evil deeds. Whitaker receives a visit at his home from the government informing him that they are aware of his illegal activity. If he assists them with boosting $500 million worth of gold, they are willing to overlook his history. The problem is that he has to complete the theft while in the air. Whitaker instructs his staff to “Just treat this like any other lift.”
The Lift official trailer shows Whitaker telling his group that they have an almost impossible assignment to do and threatens to put them in jail if they fail. “Half a billion in gold is on its way to a terrorist cell,” says Whitaker. “We gotta steal it mid-flight, 40,000 feet in the air.”
Whitaker makes every effort to create the ideal plan, but a number of obstacles may force the crew to wing it and improvise. “All right then, let’s show them what true artistry looks like,” he says at a critical moment.
The NAACP Image Award winner expressed excitement for the new Kevin Hart Netflix movie when it was first announced back in September of 2021.
“Raising the bar and finding the projects that give me the best opportunity to show growth is a priority of mine as well as HartBeat productions,” wrote Hart on Facebook. “This film is going to be special!!!!!! Let’s gooooooooo!!!!!!! I’m so proud of my entire team at HartBeat Productions….You guys are crushing!!!!!”
